Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0haha thanks.. the thing is i actually want to learn how to do it not just be thrown the answer.. i had a real crappy teacher that didnt teach a thing and im trying to take ap calc so i have to self teach myself alot of material (sorry ranting lol) but i factored i got 17(x6)(x14)..
